We took Isaac out of school for a long-overdue trip up to NC. We usually drive overnight, and it works great for us, but this time I was coming down with some virus that made it feel like a never-ending slog through the rural southeast. We made it, though, and I collapsed at my in-law's door, handed off the kids, and crawled into bed. Thank God for grandparents, right?
Vance was pretty tired too, but we recovered. We had a lot of celebrating to do in Oak Ridge, since it was Mom's birthday and Mother's Day that weekend! Ellen, David, & co. drove over for a day, which was great. The older the kids get, the better they play together. I didn't grow up knowing my cousins well, so it's especially heartwarming for me to see my kids get to have those relationships.
Eve was giving everyone her patented stinkeye while we were in NC, but when I tried to capture it on camera, she gave me this. Typical :).
